Wedding Dresses for Different Venue Styles

When it comes to picking a theme for your wedding, the venue and dress are two of the most important factors! And choosing the right gown for your venue creates a cohesive effect that makes it all come together seamlessly. With different wedding venues comes a variety of different wedding dresses that can emphasize all the amazing aspects of your surroundings. Let’s explore some wedding dress options that would pair with certain venues beautifully! 


Church Wedding

A church wedding is definitely the most traditional venue, so brides getting married in this venue tend to opt for a more traditional gown that leans more on the modest, timeless side! These tend to be more formal than other venues, so go for a wedding gown that can make an impact to look extra grand in this setting.

 A church wedding is the perfect occasion for the Kate gown! It’s a classic ball gown design that features intricate details. Lace covers the sweetheart bodice and a crystal trim cinches in the waist. You will really impress your guests with this pleated full skirt - plus, it has pockets! 

 

Rustic Barn Venue

Getting married in a barn is intimate, cozy, and warm. Barn weddings offer a relaxed, laid-back ambiance. Dresses that reflect this will be great for the venue! Chiffon and lace are great fabrics to go for. We like simple silhouettes like a sheath or A-line that aren't too tight or fitted. Short dresses also work!

 The feminine and timeless nature of the Miranda wedding dress is ideal for a barn wedding. We love the sweet simplicity of the deep v neckline, fitted waist, and chiffon layered skirt! It’s just laid-back enough to fit this venue seamlessly.

 

Ballroom Wedding

Dresses for any indoor venue other than a church can be so much more flexible! A venue's formality and theme are the most important factors to consider. However, most indoor venues will be perfect for elegant and sophisticated dress styles. Soft, luxurious fabrics and modern silhouettes are appropriate for such occasions. Modern, stylish looks should have minimal details on the dress and simple, uncluttered styles.

 Liza is a romantic, feminine gown that would look stunning in a ballroom wedding venue! The 3D lace and beads down the skirt really add to the drama of the look. There are a number of incredible fabrics used in this gown, including satin, lace and tulle. This gown is finished off with an amazing lace-up back!

 

Beach Wedding

Beach venues like the beach require you to consider a variety of factors when picking a dress. Lightweight fabrics that are breathable and airy are best suited to the natural ambiance. A long train is not practical due to the natural turf. Furthermore, beach weddings require travel. You need a lightweight, low-maintenance dress for easy transport!

 With its crochet and beaded lace, the Madelyn is timeless and romantic! A light and airy chiffon skirt is paired with an open halter neckline and bare back, which makes it perfect for a beach wedding. What’s great about this gown is that it’s still sophisticated but great for a more easygoing bride looking for ease of movement.
